About Me

In terms of music as far back as I can remember I have always loved music and was playing my Mum and Dads record collection from a early age on my very own second hand record player. It was not soul or jazz but rock and roll and crooner’s from a collection of 78’s that I had been given. There was not a day when I did not have some form of musical tune in my head and I always felt that I needed more. I was exposed to Jazz during the 1980's by listening to pirate radio in London and have developed this love of the genre as I have got older.

I now have the privilege of broadcasting two radio shows, one where Jazz features heavily and the second is a jazz based show. I am always on the lookout for new artists and have had the chance of interviewing people for both shows from all over the world.

If I was asked for jazz music influences I would always say both Miles Davis and Bill Evans as I find their music timeless.

My Jazz Story

Published on: 2016-05-21

I love jazz because it takes me on a journey and I never quite know where it will end. From Miles to Bill Evans to Coltrane to Tin Men and the Telephone each song tells a story and takes me to places I have never been Its a mind changer, an influencer and brings pure happiness; maybe an education becuase each little trip in my mind leaves me wanting more and more. Thats what jazz is to me.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
